MLG Chicago 2006 was the fourth event of the 2006 MLG season, taking place at the Pheasant Run Resort & Spa in St. Charles, Illinois from July 21-23, 2006. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA/1v1 tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Overview

Following Anaheim, not many major team changes were made. Seven of the top eight seeded teams returned with the same rosters as they had in Anaheim, with only eX making any changes, complimenting the return of GH057ayame with the addition of Mimic to the roster.

When the time came for the event, Chicago shattered the attendance record, with a whopping 177 teams on hand. The event started off predictably until the 3rd round, where #2 seed Str8 Rippin and #3 seed Carbon were upset by #7 seed Shook on3 gaming and #6 seed Storm Ventures, respectively. This lead to a clash between Str8 Rippin and Carbon in Losers' round 5, meaning one of the top 3 teams would be going home with a top 8 finish. Carbon would take the series 3-1, ending Str8's event with their lowest ever placing at the time. Despite being knocked into Losers' by Storm Ventures, Shook On3 gaming continued to impress, upsetting the 7th seeded eX in the 6th round, while Carbon mowed through XiT Woundz on the other side of things. Carbon put an end to Shook On3's cinderella story with a 3-1 defeat over the team in the next round, ending their event with an albeit impressive 4th place finish. In the Winners' finals, Storm Ventures predictably could not overcome Final Boss, and were sent to the Losers' Bracket for a rematch with Carbon. Carbon battled hard, taking the series to game 11, but could not take the final game, instead taking a 3rd place finish. In the Grand Finals rematch between SV and FB, the underdog SV put up an admirable fight, taking the series to 10 games, but it was not meant to be. Final Boss continued their unstoppable streak at the biggest event yet.
